. the port just finished the fee process. i was on the water taxi with the bidders because i wanted to see what value they could add specifically for america's cup. my brain doesn't stop therethv i wanted to look atwater taxi as a resource. [speaker not understood]. i want to talk to them more extensively about next year. this gives us plenty time what water taxis mean by the time it is open in 2017, 2018. >> thank you. i just want to say i think this is a truly critical part of this development as we move forward and i appreciate the work that is happening in this area. i know that supervisor wiener has some questions, but i just want to make sure that we continue to look at this, one of the top concerns of course are we going to be able to [speaker not understood] to meet this need and how do we serve it, but also not impact other parts of the city as well. and then how can we also enhance some of the existing issues that already exist in the neighborhood even without the warriors arena that have safety issues, the bike access as well as other public transit. you i really look forward to

of presentations. some of this information we've shared with both the cac and with the port commission, but this is the first time that we've come to you board of supervisors because these hearings are broadcast and televised, we think it will reach an even wider audience with a level of detail we haven't yet been able to communicate with the city at large. lisa pagan from our office will address issues and concerns that supervisor kim brought up. peter all bert from the mta will be discussing the transportation survey and assessment that's currently ongoing for the waterfront and how that will impact the environmental review process for this project. we have byron the director of development from the port to discuss briefly the port's waterfront land use plan which we think provides very important context for why this location is appropriate to consider an arena. and then we will have craig talk about the actual design. it's really tremendous that we have craig here to present the design himself because really no one does it justice the way he does. after that we'll just have very bri
. >> today is day five of a strike that's shut down seven of eight terminals at the port of los angeles and three at the port of long beach. long shore men walked off the job to support a clerical worker strike and that's caused nine ships to be diverted to other ports including oakland. 40% of the imports pass through the ports in los angeles and long beach. >>> at the port of oakland a possible freement has been reached there. members of is the diu local 1021 are set to vote next week. this a week after a worker strike and more than a year after members voted down the last contract. the union is made up of support staff. >> a state board has released a plan to restore the delta to provide a more reliable water supply. the council issued the final draft of its plan yesterday. it includes recommendations like reducing water suppliers dependance on the delta and expanding habitats. the delta currently provides drinking water to two thirds of the state and provides irrigation to five million acres of crops movement japan is handing over five million dollars to the united states to help p
into with your ships, not any more. so a hydrographic survey, certain port was absolutely mandatory when you have this event. i said to the australian staff, because of that we are closer neighbors right now. here you can see an example that was before the earthquake, the distance of the low tide. and now it's absolutely far away. so some marine small sea life in there absolutely disappeared. that's another effect you can see a lighthouse in there before tsunami and where is the lighthouse in the middle of the island down there after the tsunami. so the bottom is absolutely came up. another example. another effect of -- global effect. because of the change of the mass of the earth, because it moves so it change slightly the configuration, it has an effect in the axis rotation of the globe. it moved 8 centimeters north pole to the east and that means rotation increased 1.26 millions of seconds so you work less because of chili right now, but it's an impact you have to take into account that happened because of that earthquake. here i can show you a set of photographs of the destruction in
that was the port and the square before, and that was after. so the change is, it's quite impressive. the same was a local pier and a school. that was a school. nothing. so we put in the navy, the navy put them in there two, three combat ships, type 23's and l ship and transport plus mtaa aircraft transport, aircraft and hell helicopters to try to help people in there. we used the ships to deliver food, clothes and all that stuff without any problem. also we helped in different matters that the navy can do that. for instance here was with divers and with submarine robot to find bodies. getting medical assistance, removing debris, try to rebuild some houses and establish basic services. moving people in and out with the navy ships. that was something this i think is a very good idea because of, as you mention here, the shock where everybody is in shock, one officer had the idea to talk with people of the university to provide a group of clowns to the island. so we put it in there and with the navy and the clowns were coming down, everybody on the island was so surprised. it breaks everythi
orleans, pascagula and gulf port, mississippi. we thought we had dodged the bullet and then the levies broke and who would have predicted that there was a sea of humanity in the super dome that basically was in extreme miss? who would have predicted in this day and age we would lose many, many people based on the fact they couldn't be medevacked, that the hospitals themselves had been flooded and the hospital staff was having to carry critically ill patients up to the top floors to avoid the water that was filling in the rooms. who would have predicted that? and were we set up to handle that? and who would have predicted in the early goings there would be civic disorder and civic disobedience and lack of command and control and then the military came there and provided that stability for a while until the civic authorities took over and eventually got things moving in a fairly organized continuum. we learned a tremendous amount of lessons from that, lessons that i hope no other city will ever have to repeat again. but the bottom line is it is so critical at this point to talk about
city. from mickey d's to wal-mart to one of our nation's busiest airports to key shipping ports. big labor is flexing its big muscles after the election and gary b, you say it's a big problem for us, the consumers, how so? >> absolutely, brenda, look, everyone should realize what unions are, unions are a little monopoly in the company and exercising the the monopoly powers, raise the rates and this days the wages for their employees through an unsustainable level. so what the employees have to do is pass those costs on to the consumer. you know, you just have to ask, brenda, where have unions made an industry more competitive? i can think of examples where they haven't, airlines, steel, auto, across the board, governments they put out of business, if even can argue they've made it more competitive. i'd stand up for unions and i can't find an example. >> prices have gone up in all of those industries and you say, fast foods, too cheap? >> yeah, i mean, i'll tell you what, i don't actually believe that we'll see unions at the fast food restaurants, but i actually wish we would. because
the benefits of the port. [speaker not understood] went over those. i think from the budget committee's discussion, i think it was last week, 5,000 full-time jobs, about 2800 -- 5,000 temporary jobs and 2800 permitted jobs and about $80 million annually from visitor spending to the city. * permanent also mentioned by the fire department, fire boat station and 7 acres of public open space. was there anything else that's left out of those public benefits from the development? >> i do think it's important about the 7 acres of open space, for commitment of the warriors to maintain all of that open space. in addition, the three sides of the pier that would be active for maritime use really not only forward the port's goals of having continued maritime access, but really do provide some pretty wonderful water-based amenities for residents and visitors. whether it's the water taxi or the ferry or the excursion boats including the boat launch and the potential of a deep water berth on the eastern edge of the pier. another sort of ongoing public amenity is just the walkway around the edge of
mean, 1993. so, i've been there port side for almost 20 years and i wanted to move to another area like the potrero, but [speaker not understood] move from a one bedroom to a two-bedroom. i've been there 20 years of my life. i spent a lot of time in the neighborhood. things are coming into the neighborhood and i've seen the growth. i've seen the dot-com come and go. it's now real vibrant. all the people that invested their livelihood making it a real good neighborhood now it's too good of a good thing. and everybody wants to come to our neighborhood. the giants came, they improved, the giants did a first class development. i warriors, i can understand how the port and city want to develop this pier because they've been trying to develop it. they voted in 1990 to develop the waterfront until there was a comprehensive waterfront [speaker not understood] to try to get the international [speaker not understood] cruise terminal built.
